Why this is a
Masterpiece

The form follows Dutch models from pre-1600, the decoration displays all the refinements of the Japanese art of lacquering. Remarkable features are the carvings in Chinese style, the figure of a Samurai in European attitude, and the fine gold painting in the style of the courtly Kano School.

History of the Object
This box is one of four objects from a group of luxury objects made in years of work for European clients. The pendant of the Vienna box, the Chiddingston box, is assumed to have been a special gift for the Mughal ruler.
